Waiting on a Window

FeaturedFirst TraxNews

Today’s featured image is from App Ski Mountain as they provided us a nice reminder of winter and what we will see as soon as we get a nice snowmaking window.

It is a window-watching kind of mood right now.

After last weekend’s burst of cold air and snowmaking at Snowshoe, we are just waiting on the next snowmaking window to help us get started with the season.

Snowshoe was the only one to take advantage of the cold weather last week (except for a couple of tests). The guys at 4848′ also got a couple of inches of natural snow for the first snow of the year.

Now, we are in the waiting mode.

In the 10-day forecast, it looks like there could be some potential nighttime windows next week, but we will have to wait and see as the time gets closer if those windows will pan out.

Speaking of forecasts, a little birdie told me that our own Brad Panovich will be sharing his Ski Southeast Winter Forecast this week. Be sure to be on the lookout for that.

It will be great to watch once the mountain op crews get things fired up to see how much progress they make in a short period of time.

Ober Gatlinburg also has a headstart on the tubing hill with their SnowMagic.

Tubing is slated to open Nov. 21. Advance tickets are on sale only for this season.

For other events at Ober and other resorts, be sure to check out our event calendar. The first couple of months are updated, and other months will be added as we get into the season.

That does it for today, but until next time, #ThinkCold!
